CGiii Comment

As creepy as it gets.

It's all just a little too contrived...the colour palette is fabulous...but, it's obvious. The flamingo dance...has the potential to be something special.

The true horror of this film is...the little girl's hair...a wonky fringe and [partially] matted hair pretending to be dreadlocks!

Well-made though...just over-thought.

The(ir) Blurb...

Marall follows her parents to a party and they want her to behave. As the evening progresses she finds the adults' behaviour increasingly strange. Everyone at the party is trying to fit in, but not everyone succeeds. Marall also seems to be the only one seeing the shadow circulating inside the house. Shadow animals is a dance-based drama about the discovery of human behaviour.
